Patrick Nielsen: I've Trained Harder Than Ever Before!

Two brothers. Two titles at stake. And a common goal of being the best in the world. Patrick and Micki Nielsen ooze confidence before their title fights on February 15th at the Albertslund MusikTeatret in Copenhagen, Denmark.
 
"I’ve trained harder and more disciplined than ever before. There’s a major belt at stake and I want my hands on it.”
 
So says 22-year-old Patrick Nielsen ahead of his fight for the WBC Silver Championship against American Tony Jeter.
 
"I'm so excited to fight again. I'm in great shape. It doesn’t get much better," says Nielsen, who last boxed four months ago winning via fifth-round knockout against Jose Pinzon.
 
His two years younger, brother, Micki is facing Georgian Gogita Gorgiladze for the WBC Youth World Title .
 
"We talk a lot about us both winning titles. We built each other up as brothers do. We have a feeling that nothing can stop us," says Patrick Nielsen.
 
Micki Nielsen can hardly wait to get in the ring.
 
"That's what I train for. To stand in the ring and prove myself. Just the walk to the ring gives me a great kick. It would be fantastic to win my first belt. It’s a big step towards the big dream of becoming a world champion."
 
Micki Nielsen reveals that the relationship between the brothers is more friendly today than in the past.
 
"When we were 14-15 years old, we boxed against each other, but we had to stop because we became too angry with each other. We did not spare the other because we both wanted so much to win. You could be sure that you got payback if you hit the other hard,” Micki Nielsen tells with a smile.
 
"Today we are fighting for each other and help and support each other to get ready for the fights. It means a lot to me how Patrick is doing. I'm only relaxed when we both have fought our battles."
